I have a pair of wide leg navy trousers which I have worn over previous summers. Are they still deemed fashionable or not as all shops are full of skinny or slim leg ones?

No idea but I v nearly wore some to work today, as I fancied a change. I chickened out though...

Remus I'm keen not to make a fashion blunder but perhaps it's about wearing what suits you? Not sure if I'm brave enough

Anyone else got an opinion on this?

If they suit you wear them!! I wear them to work with a fitted top. I also wear slim leg trews/skinny jeans - wearing wide legged trousers doesn't preclude you from wearing slim/skinny trousers as well.

I'm prepared to be shouted down but I'd have thought they were kind of classic in a timeless Katherine Hepburn way...?

Ooh yes unrequited grin Katherine Hepburn. I have no hips and they give me the illusion of having some!

See I really don't care about fashion but sometimes things can look a bit off-kilter, or at least feel it. I might wear them tomorrow and see if the world continues to turn...smile

My problem is that my legs are one of my better features, and wide legged trousers hide them!

Well I think they are fine as long as you don't wear it with a floaty top that's too nineties.

They are classic, if they suit you, wear them.

With a fitted top or tucked in shirt would look great.

I went for a short skirt instead! My problem is, I have to wear a jacket for work but then it can get a bit cluttered or mannish. Any ideas? I'm thinking maybe with a plain silk t-shirt tucked in, and then a cropped jacket?

Well the fashion police were lurking but I think I got away with it! I wore the wide legged trousers with a 3/4 length sleeve jaegar boutique top and I felt the look worked ok
remus your suggestion sounds good go with the silk t-shirt (to formalise it)and a more casual blazer maybe?

And I am pear shaped and have curvy hips and they are very flattering and slim them down.

Will give it a go. smile

I did it! I wore them with a simple, cropped jacket and a Westwood draped silk top plus v high heels. Got lots of nice comments but mostly about the top!

remus was there any sign of the fashion police in your area? Your outfit sounds lovely

Thank you. The Fashion Police Lady from our place has left now, so I was safe! smile
